...Or comes back "in".
My goodness, I think I'm getting sucked in! Not only have granny squares made a resurgence, but so have ripple afghans! And I'm actually thinking of making them both.
One can find them all over the craft blogs! But they aren't ugly, like their predecessors. Oh, no. These afghans are made of gorgeous colors and yarns...yarns like baby cashmerino. The word has "cash" in it; I'd better steer clear of that yarn! LOL
Jane at Yarnstorm made a beautiful ripple afghan, and Alicia at Posie Gets Cozy is working on a lovely granny square afghan.
And if that's not enough to convince you to make one for yourself, check out these stitch-alongs:
